Dr Frederick Kiel would take the trek by paddle steamer from Melbourne every summer during the late 1800s to spend his summers at Sorrento. His children established a grazing station nearby, on a property acquired from the Baillieu family along Portsea Ocean Beach, ultimately planted to vineyards in 2000. These are the most extreme western longitudes of Mornington, the undulating paddocks and sweeping views of tempestuous Bass Strait are a magical place for growing Burgundesque styles of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, well protected north facing parcels of propitious free draining limestone and calcareous sands.

Negroamaro Puglia Italy
Cantina Tormaresca age their wines under an aristocratic chapel named Saint Pasquale within the estate of Masseria Maime, built in the seventeenth century to service the temporal needs of itinerant farm hands. The gracefully old Negroamaro vines at Masseria Maime were fortuitously planted at the very heart of Apulian viticulture, they yield a tremendous wine that's made for gastronomy. Infused by the aromaticness of lush pine woodlands and surrounding olive groves, a seriously seductive, silken textured wine to match with pork recipes and rustic styled, full flavoured fare.
A compilation of harvests Negroamaro, picked off an inventory of Masseria Maime estate vineyards at San Pietro Vernotico in the province of Brindisi. Harvest is timed to a schedule determined by peak ripeness to create a wine of elegance, richness and structure. Grapes are pressed into fermentation vats for a fortnight or more of warmer temperature vinification on skins, aimed at extracting maximum fruit character and optimal tannins. Upon completion, batches are run off skins into a selection of French and Hungarian oak barrels for a course of malolactic and a year's maturation. Components are assembled into the final wine and treated to a further eighteen months bottle age before release.
Intense ruby red. Fresh and fruity nose of cherries and violet, and sweet spices, liquorice and anisette, cinnamo and cloves. An elegantly drying palate of black cherry, mulberries and spice, exquisitely balanced between sweetness of fruit and savouryness of style, all held in place by genteel background oak and smooth supporting tannins.
